Third game in a row with a hat trick! This time it was Alex Semin and his goals were a thing of beauty... and yet, the Capitals still lost. :(
Bruce Boudreau was seriously harsh on the defense and Varlamov after the game last night... and I agreed with him. All game I kept wondering why they didn't pull Varly. It's a bad sign when your team scores five goals including a hat trick and you still lose in regulation. The Capitals are better than that and they could have shored up the defense and kept a few of the Senators' six goals out of the net.
I really hope the Caps win on Saturday in St. Louis. It would be good to head in to the Olympic break remembering how to win.
